Final expense insurance is a popular choice for those wanting to provide for their loved ones after passing away. It can be used for many purposes and can serve as a great benefit to anyone who purchases it.

Why Is It Called Final Expense?

This policy gets its name from the common reason for why it’s purchased. The death benefit is typically enough to cover all funeral and burial costs – these are the “final expenses”. That’s also why this is also known as burial insurance.

The death benefit ranges from $2,000 to $50,000 depending on the insurance company, and how much it is willing to offer the person purchasing it. By comparison, funeral costs average between $7,000 and $12,000.

While it is among the least discriminatory insurance policies on the market, factors such as age and gender influence the monthly premiums and the size of a policy a person can get. This is because these are closely tied to life expectancy. Women pay lower rates because their average life expectancies are higher than men’s. Older individuals are closer to the end of life, therefore not being able to pay as much in premiums as a younger person would.

What Do I Need To Do To Enroll?

Enrolling in a final expense policy is faster and easier than other life insurance policies. At most, you will fill out a medical questionnaire consisting of yes-or-no questions, if you decide on getting a simplified issue policy. There’s no physical exam or any appointments at a doctor’s office. If you’re in poor physical health and are likely to have unfavorable responses to health questions, you can get a guaranteed issue policy that omits the questionnaire.

How Can I Use It?

The funds disbursed to loved ones can be used for any purpose – no strings attached. This is a tax-free benefit, so your loved ones will get the exact amount you allotted to them.

Your beneficiaries can use the death benefit for expenses such as:

  • Student loans or college tuition
  • Medical bills
  • Credit card debt
  • Rent or mortgage payments

They may also use it for leisure. This can help them cover costs like traveling and vacation. The uses are endless.

Final expense insurance can also be of use while you’re still alive. For instance, you can get final expense insurance as a means of obtaining collateral for a loan.
